A 24-hour strike on the Central and Waterloo & City lines will go ahead on Wednesday 7th November.

Transport for London have warned commuters that there will be little or no service on two of the capital's busiest lines.

Drivers on the Waterloo & City and Central lines are striking from midnight on Wednesday 7th November for 24 hours, following a 'breakdown in industrial relations'.

Why is the Central Line and Waterloo & City Line on strike?

But TfL say that the RMT and Aslef unions have demanded the reinstatement of a Central Line driver who deliberately opened the doors of a train in a tunnel, and another driver who failed a drugs test.

A separate strike on the Piccadilly line has been suspended, and services on that line are expected to run as normal.

Are any tubes running on the Central Line or Waterloo & City Line?

The entire lines are suspended due to strike action.

Are extra buses running to cover the strikes?

Transport for London say they are running additional buses throughout the strikes, but these are also likely to be busy.

National rail services will be running as normal, and are also expected to be busier than normal.

Which stations are likely to be busiest during the tube strikes?

TfL predict that some central London stations may need to close to prevent overcrowding, including: Stratford, Bond Street, Tottenham Court Road, Bank, Liverpool Street, Woodford, Mile End, Leytonstone, White City, Ealing Broadway, Oxford Circus, Notting Hill Gate.

The organisation recommends passengers plan their route and check for updates on the TfL website before travelling.
